    Need keyboard help


    I have Win 8 and tonight i discovered an issue with 2 keys being reversed. I am hoping someone here can help me resolve this. This system is only about 2 months old. When i try to use shift +2 for the @ sign i get " instead. And when i press the " key next to enter i get the @ sign. How can i reverse these?

    Hmmmm! Interesting, looked up your problem using Google and found that there are quite few that have the same problem (learned something new today). Try this link to see if it will help. Good Luck.

    BTW, Welcome to the Eight Forums. . .

    I spent 48 minutes with HP support somewhere in India who had me do a system restore which fixed the problem.
